Why Investing in Premium Home Theater Brands Matters Installing a home theater, whether you work it into your new home blueprints or update an existing space, is a huge commitment and investment. But when designed thoughtfully – from the audio technology to the aesthetics – it can increase the value of your home and the time you spend in it. More and more people are shying away from cheap, temporary furniture and décor and opting for premium brands – think high quality items with timeless appeal. Our experts are the best in the business, so we’ve picked a few of our favorites that are hot right now. Premium home theater products and services not only give you higher quality for the price you’re paying, but they also last longer, perform better, and often carry name brand recognition that others just don’t have. Let’s take a look at some of our current favorites in the store. When it comes to speakers, Paradigm seamlessly blends unbeatable sound technology with a classic aesthetic. The company introduced its Prestige 15B Bookshelf Speaker at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and people are loving it. Two-way crossover technology sets it apart, providing solid audio to listeners not positioned directly in front of the sweet spot. Pair the wood grain finish with the optional stand for a sleek, retro vibe. The Prestige 15B in Midnight Cherry finish is now on display and ready to demo in the Century Stereo Showroom.

They combine luxurious materials and design to mesh beauty and performance. For over-the-top luxury with a classic feel, opt for the red Paramount chair with nail head detailing (perfect for watching The Godfather). For something more modern (think Ocean’s 11) the Bavarian is chic just as comfortable and classy. CinemaTech seating comes in a variety of colors and layouts.

Based in Connecticut, Salamander products are built with sustainable materials and made-to-order. Stop by to see the company’s Synergy and Chameleon lines, which include multi-function pull-out shelves, a cabinet LED lighting system and more.
